The bar and bat mitzvah ceremonies mark a child’s transition into adulthood in the eyes of the Jewish faith. After becoming a bar or bat mitzvah, a boy or girl is considered a full member or a congregation; they can be part of a prayer group (minyan) and are now responsible for their own faith and observance. Vist our bar/bat mitzvah page to learn about preparing for and celebrating your child’s bar or bat mitzvah with Temple Beth El.
Many Jewish adults never had the opportunity when they were young to have a bar or bat mitzvah. Temple Beth El believes that a person is never too old to study and fulfill this lifecycle event. Visit our adult bar/bat mitzvah page to learn more about becoming an adult bar or bat mitzvah.
